FRIGE 4 Months Dissertation Course

Genetics is currently going through a rapid expansion in its suite of techniques and technologies. Understanding these technologies and using them in research and diagnostic settings is key for their robust implementation in clinics.

Backed by popular demand, we have developed 4 months FRIGE Dissertation Course that covers theoretical and practical aspects of conducting BSc/ BTech/ MSc/ MTech (in Biotechnology or Allied Health Sciences) dissertation.

In the one-of-its-kind hands on course, young students would be conducting hands-on experiments, data analysis and dissertation write-up. Students attending the course will also get to learn utility of different techniques and technologies in clinical practice together with aspects of genetic counselling.

Dissertation topics would cover existing research work that is undertaken at FRIGE. You can learn about the current research here.
